Square Enix has decided to delay Final Fantasy XV a full 2 months, confirming earlier rumours from a Gamestop employee that there was a delay coming. The game will now be releasing on November 29th, 2016, as opposed to September 30th. In a video message Hajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy XV said:
We held a presentation in March and announced that Final Fantasy XV would have a simultaneous worldwide release on the 30th of September. I am very sorry, but I must ask for just a little more time to polish our game up some more.
We are changing the release date of Final Fantasy XV to the 29th of November 2016.
The disc that is going on sale on the 29th of November, will contain everything that was scheduled to be on the day one patch, as well as some extra things on top of that. So we will be delivering what we consider to be the ultimate quality version of Final Fantasy XV to all the players who play without connecting online as well.
